The young sculptress Sally is a passionate artist waiting for her career to take off. When she is offered to do a solo exhibition at a prominent museum it is a huge opportunity, but we soon find out that she is pregnant and due at the same time as the exhibition is supposed to take place. The sculpting work is very physically demanding and could potentially harm the pregnancy. Her boyfriend Fabian is happy for her but doesn't understand how she can be in doubt. What could be bigger than creating a child? At the end it is her choice whether to carry through with the pregnancy or accept the exhibition offer and live out her passion.
